Merchant account

The bank account which facilitates the business to accept payments through debit and credit cards. It is the agreement between a merchant bank, a retailer and a payment processor.

Usually, when we make a purchase and pay using our debit or credit card, the merchant bank will make the payment to the retailer and later on transfer the money to the businesses.these transfers are done on a weekly and monthly basis. And when we are in the e-commerce business, then there is the need for an online merchant account for the concerned transactions.

Online merchants

The online merchants use the online merchant account for the transactions as the business is also in the same mode.while comparing with the usual merchant account the fees for the online account will be more as the risk associated with it is higher as the online payment is combined with a high-risk factor.
